The Menard Family Foundation through its grants has assisted retired religious of several religious communities of sisters, priests and brothers including the Cenacle Sisters who reside in Chicago. Director Barbara Menard was able to visit the sisters at the Cenacle Retreat House on Fullerton Parkway in June 2012. She also saw a number of the Cenacle Sisters who receive ongoing care at the skilled nursing facility Resurrection Life Center across from Resurrection Hospital in Chicago.
